There is a good writeup at NTP Pool servers on Kubernetes on Packet | NTP Pool News about the setup of NTP Pool servers on Packet from 2019. Three years later, Packet has been acquired by Equinix and is now branded as “Equinix Metal”, and data centers are being updated and modernized and some older server types decommissioned.
It’s going to be necessary to do work on this set of servers, with some of them going offline and many systems needing to be rebuilt in new data centers. I think there’s time to do all this over the summer if the effort begins relatively soon.
Equinix Metal provides a set of servers to the NTP Pool project, but does not run them ourselves. @ask and crew will need to be leading this effort, and I am happy to help in any way.
